Berry Skinny Girl

If I was a reality TV star, I would be Bethenny Frankel. Love her scary amounts.

Bethenny's claim to fame is her stint on the drama-ful (that's drama + wonderful) series, the Real Housewives of New York. She is also famous for her business, Skinny Girl, best known for a low calorie Margarita mix.

It costs $13 a bottle.

And makes this.
But I can do it for cheaper...


Lauren's version.
1. Slice 1/2 a large lime (or a whole small one) into wedges and squeeze, along with 1/2 a clementine, into a mixing glass/shaker
2. Add 4-5 fresh raspberries and a generous drizzle agave nectar (~ 1 Tbsp) and muddle with a wooden spoon.
3. Add ice
4. Add a 1 1/2 - 2 oz. shot of 100% agave blanco tequila and a splash of triple sec
The ingredients
5. Shake it
6. Strain through a Hawthorne strainer (the raspberry seeds tend to clog the holes in a standard cocktail strainer) into a glass over ice

Other stuff you need.
7. Top off with Sprite
8. Garnish with a fresh raspberry on a cocktail pick, a lime wedge, and an orange wheel
9. Serve with a straw

Luv you, Skinny B*tch*s

You should try to do the blended frozen skinny girl margarita...you don't use the mix but Bethenny has a video on You Tube how to do it. It works really well and is low cal and very good. I make them by the pitcher for Zac's family in the summer. Fun! :)
